    Some description of the shrine was built after the old fortress and former Castle. You can take a walk through the lush green. But it might be even better because it's just impossible to go

    When I arrived I was swimming leisurely moat Swan family. Takeda shrine Kofu tourist attractions is the famous place. Takeda Shingen is enshrined at the shrine in the Castle Hall ruins of Takeda clan made in the Taisho era. Very fine and flexible environment. It seems to place where you can enjoy cherry blossoms in spring. There are episodes of Osamu Dazai. Castle Hall ruins is one of 100. Free parking is available.

    Great shrine was not impressed. It is good feeling. Man's Castle. In the words of Shingen was fascinated. Suikinkutsu, little good if the flow of water and was... Of chickens on the side courageously to bamboo ear, also focusing on a sound kokekokkoo-the laugh loud. And the beautiful stage. Nokyo-sho had us write and 2 types of illustrations Shingen sitting up and standing printed one. ★ dogs are okay, but buggy went ride home. ★ car park is free of charge.
